Physical Description
105 plans/blueprints (24" x 36")
Physical Condition
These plans were rolled and some are creased. They were stored outside for several years.
Acquisition Source
Donated by Keith Burns of Braeside in December 2012.
Scope and Content
Series consists of an incomplete numbered set of Blueprints produced by H. E. Boray Jr. Consulting Engineers for Gillies Bros. for their modernization project in August of 1958. 40 of the plans are final drawings while the rest are marked Void. They consist of structural, site, foundations, operational layouts, floor plans, fire protection, electrical, and elevation drawings.
From this series, researchers can determine how old buildings were removed and replaced with new structures including dry kilns, sorting and shipping building and a green storage shed. The series also includes a Construction Schedule and Isometric view of the Braeside plant.
Notes
Scale varies according to plan. Void plans were kept where no final plan exists.

Description
Reverend Henry Usborne from Portage du Fort built a mill at Braeside in 1870. It was purchased by Gillies Bros. of Carleton Place in 1873. Expanded significantly in 1890’s, the mill exported mainly white pine lumber from this location using rail to the US and overseas markets. Circular saws were replaced with more efficient band saws which increased annual production to 35 million board feet. Numerous buildings located at this site included: lumber sheds, an oil house, the Canadian Pacific Railway station, a storage shed, drive shed, sorting tables, lathe mill, a brick chimney, saw mill with cupola (built by Usborne) and a bullet nose refuse burner. This mill was entirely destroyed by fire June 23 1919.
